Celebrating National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week 2023

Dear Nurses, 

The impact you make on health care is unparalleled. From assisting with life-threatening ER crises to delivering babies and caring for the elderly in their last moments, you perform some of the most difficult and heartbreaking tasks in the medical world. 

During the National Nurses Week, we honor your contributions and sacrifices, and we Thank you for keeping us healthy.

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year.

National Nurse Week was observed Oct. 11-16 in 1954 to mark the 100th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s mission to Crimea, but congress discontinued its practice of joint resolutions for national weeks. The International Council of Nurses proclaimed May 12, 1974 as International Nurse Day, something the organization had celebrated since 1965, and the White House joined in recognizing the week that year.

The ANA (American Nurses Association) board expanded nurses recognition to a week in by declaring May 6-12, 1991 as National Nurses Week.

The Nursing profession is one to be proud of and it’s only right that they should be honored for their contribution to so many people in need. Nurses go above and beyond what anyone could expect, in order to bring comfort and aid to people in need of care.

Here at DZEEL CLINICAL, we are incredibly thankful for the passion and dedication of our Nurses that serve our community. The extra effort they make, the extra steps they take, and the extra care they give adds up to a big difference to the lives of the people they touch.

When it comes to kindness, compassion, and caring for others, nurses have us all beat. They work long shifts doing many of the tiny, important tasks that keep us healthy, everything from school nurses who fix booboos with Band-Aids and send kids back to the playground, to nurses in hospitals who perform complicated, life-saving maneuvers on the sickest patients every day.
